Originally inspired by Old San Juan, Puerto Rico's impressive banyan trees, these abstract vertical patterns continue to catch my eye in many unexpected places and forms—streaks of rust on New York subway station walls, cracks in the sidewalk, light reflected underwater, and in images of cerebral neurons and the circulatory system. The ubiquity of these forms in nature intrigues me, and creating these paintings puts me in a meditative state.
